Oled TV Fan

 

Despite the current state of the economy, Panasonic has confirmed that it will release an OLED TV within 2 years.

According to smarthouse.com.au Panasonic figures that they can do a better job than Sony and produce a Panasonic OLED TV with a 37″ screen and a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours.

These new Panasonic OLED TVs are to be built at the IPS Alpha factory and may be produced in a partnership with Toshiba.

There seems to be more positive OLED TV news the past few weeks. Can’t wait to see one of the larger sized OLEDs in the stores.

 

According to Smarthouse, LG will be introducing a 15″ OLED TV before Christmas this year and a 32″ OLED TV by June next year.

“LG is set to steal Sony’s OLED advantage with Company insiders in Korea telling SmartHouse that the Korean Company will have a 15″ for sale by Xmas and a 32″ in mid 2010.”

This is in addition to LG producing 15″ OLED displays for a new Apple notebook this year.

Pricing is expected to start a 2-3x the price of an equivalent size LCD TV. Even so, it appears that LG will have a 32″ OLED TV out before Sony has anything in that range.

 

Here’s a clip of the latest Sony OLED TV, a 21″ model only 3mm thick. No word on production or pricing yet.

 

Despite high hopes for any OLED TV with a screen size larger than the 11″ Sony XEL-1, none are forthcoming.

Both Panasonic and LG have announced in the last year that they would have 37″ and 15″ OLED TVs available within the next year or two but I’ll believe that when I see it.

Samsung just  told European journalists at its 2009 European Forum that consumers expecting an OLED television from the company anytime soon shouldn’t hold their breath.

“We still have several issues to overcome in terms of cost and production”, said a HS Kim, vice president in charge of Flat Panel Development at Samsung when asked when the company would be releasing an OLED television.

Confirming statements made earlier by Kim in 2008, the big cheese at the company’s TV department said “It will be four or five years before OLED is mainstream”.

The company recently showed off Samsung OLED TV prototypes at CES in Las Vegas in January.

With the recent cancellation of the Pioneer Kuro Plasma TV line, there is a real gap at the top end of flat panel displays. Who will fill it? Canon with SED TV? FET with FED TV? Wait and see. I don’t see too many new OLED TV reviews coming this year.

OLED TV Reviews… well it’s been over a year since the first OLED TV was introduced by Sony, the XEL-1.

It is still the only OLED TV available to the general public.

It may be too early to tell, but the demise of Pioneer as a TV manufacturer may help speed up further introduction of OLED TV.

LG is still planning on releasing a 15″ OLED TV this summer. However, there is no news yet on where it will be released first, pricing or other definite specs.

Despite high hopes, there was nothing new released from Sony at CES 2009 and nothing since.

Toshiba has announced that they are working on OLED wallpaper;

“The wallpaper uses light that has been redirected by an ultra-fine grating that is fabricated by self-assembled nano particles.” It would seem that the effect might be similar to that of a Fresnel lens like those used in traffic lights, amplifying the intensity without requiring additional energy.”

This is definitely cool, but not something we’ll see anytime soon.
